INTRODUCTION: No comprehensive review has examined the difference between community-acquired (CA) and hospital-acquired (HA) acute kidney injury (AKI) in terms of patient characteristics, in-hospital mortality, and hospital stay length. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies, using MEDLINE, EMBASE, Web of Science, Google Scholar, and the Cochrane Library from their inceptions to April 10, 2016. Observational studies that (1) were published in peer-reviewed journals; (2) compared CA-AKI with HA-AKI, irrespective of the AKI definition during the same period; and (3) investigated in-hospital mortality and length of hospital stay were studied...

INTRODUCTION: Pertuzumab, as an adjunctive therapy to trastuzumab and docetaxel, has been reported to be potentially beneficial for the treatment of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic breast cancer. However, the results remain controversial. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pertuzumab supplementation in patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer. METHODS: Medline, SCOPUS, Google Scholar, Cochrane library databases, EMBASE, Springer, and Science Direct were systematically searched...

BACKGROUND: Opioid-induced constipation (OIC) is one of the most frequent and severe adverse events (AEs) following treatment with opioids. Recent studies have indicated that fixed-ratio combination prolonged-release oxycodone/naloxone (OXN PR) could decrease OIC with similar pain relief compared with other opioids. OBJECTIVES: We systematically reviewed (PROSPERO registration numbers: CRD42016036244) the constipation relief of OXN PR compared with other opioids regardless of formulation, prolonged-release or extended-release used for the relief of chronic pain...

BACKGROUND: Acute pancreatitis is one of the most common complications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Whether the prophylactic administration of rectal non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) peri-ERCP is effective in preventing post-ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) remains controversial. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of rectal NSAIDs on PEP. METHODS: A systematic search of literature databases (Cochrane Library, PubMed, EMBASE, and Web of Science) was performed to identify eligible randomized controlled trials (RCTs)...

Glasgow prognostic score (GPS) has been reported to be an indicator of prognosis for various cancers. However, the relationship between GPS and colorectal cancers (CRC) remains unclear. A comprehensive search of Pubmed, Embase, Cochrane library, Web of Science, ChinaInfo and Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure was performed to identify eligible studies, from which the risk of overall survival (OS) and cancer-specific survival (CSS) were extracted. A random-effect model was adopted to combine hazard ratio (HR) and 95% confidence interval (CI)...

INTRODUCTION: Low vitamin D status has been found to be associated with impaired glycemic control in patients who suffer from type 2 diabetes; however, whether vitamin D supplementation is associated with improved glycemic status remains controversial. The aim of this study was to summarize evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to assess the efficacy of vitamin D supplementation in reducing glycosylated haemoglobinA1c (HbA1c) and fasting blood glucose (FBG) levels. MATERIALS/METHODS: We searched PubMed, Web of Science and the Cochrane Library for reports published up to March 2017...

Long noncoding RNA ZFAS1 has been identified as a crucial role in the tumorigenesis of malignant tumors. Numerous studies reported that the expression levels of ZFAS1 in tumor tissues were dramatically higher than that in adjacent normal tissues. We conducted a meta-analysis to investigate the correlation between ZFAS1 expression and clinical outcomes of cancer patients. The databases of PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, CNKI and WanFang were retrieved for eligible studies. A total of 841 patients from 9 studies were eventually included...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) technology has theoretical advantages in comparison with traditional adjuvant radiation therapy (whole-breast irradiation; WBI) after breast-conserving surgery. However, published randomized controlled trials have shown inconsistent outcomes. Therefore, a comprehensive assessment of the effectiveness and safety of APBI technology is needed. RESULTS: A total of 7 studies of 7452 patients were included in this analysis...

AIM: To compare the therapeutic effect and safety of laser photocoagulation along with intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) versus laser therapy in treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS: Pertinent publications were identified through comprehensive searches of PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, and ClinicalTrials.gov to identify randomized clinical trials (RCTs) comparing IVR+laser to laser monotherapy in patients with DME. Therapeutic effect estimates were determined by weighted mean differences (WMD) of change from baseline in best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central retinal thickness (CRT) at 6, 12, or 24mo after initial treatment, and the risk ratios (RR) for the proportions of patients with at least 10 letters of improvement or reduction at 12mo...

INTRODUCTION: Epidemiological evidence suggests that physical activity has a positive effect on reducing glycated haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels not only in diabetics, but also in healthy subjects. Moreover, a positive association of HbA1c levels with cardiovascular disease and mortality in non-diabetic populations has recently been reported. This is a protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis aiming to estimate the effects of physical activity on glycaemic control measured by HbA1c levels in non-diabetic populations; and to determine which type of physical activity has a greater influence on glycaemic control...

BACKGROUND: Killed whole-cell oral cholera vaccines (kOCVs) are becoming a standard cholera control and prevention tool. However, vaccine efficacy and direct effectiveness estimates have varied, with differences in study design, location, follow-up duration, and vaccine composition posing challenges for public health decision making. We did a systematic review and meta-analysis to generate average estimates of kOCV efficacy and direct effectiveness from the available literature. METHODS: For this systematic review and meta-analysis, we searched PubMed, Embase, Scopus, and the Cochrane Review Library on July 9, 2016, and ISI Web of Science on July 11, 2016, for randomised controlled trials and observational studies that reported estimates of direct protection against medically attended confirmed cholera conferred by kOCVs...

BACKGROUND: The development of supraglottic airway devices has revolutionized airway management during general anaesthesia. Two devices are widely used in clinical practice to facilitate positive pressure ventilation: the ProSeal laryngeal mask airway (pLMA) and the Classic laryngeal mask airway (cLMA). It is not clear whether these devices have important clinical differences in terms of efficacy or complications. OBJECTIVES: To compare the effectiveness of the ProSeal laryngeal mask airway (pLMA) and the Classic LMA (cLMA) for positive pressure ventilation in adults undergoing elective surgery...
